ULMS Stars Return to Latrobe Speedway for the Dave Kittey Memorial


By DJ Johnson


LATROBE, PA (May 6, 2024) Dave Kittey was involved in auto racing from a young age. His father owned race cars and promoted race tracks. Dave Kittey loved the sport and never took a break from it until his passing on August 23, 2022.


Latrobe Speedway, formerly known as Schmuckers Speedway, the track that Dave’s family once promoted, will honor Dave Kittey with the Dave Kittey Memorial on Saturday, May 11, at 7 pm.


The Jay’s Automotive ULMS Racing Super Late Models return to Latrobe to be part of this celebration of life for the former Co-Publisher and Editor of RPM Racing News. Kittey was a voting member of the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame, and RPM Racing News presented the Late Model Driver of the Year Award.


Dave Kittey, a passionate Super Late Model racing fan, dedicated many years to traveling to the biggest events, showcasing his love for the sport.


It’s only fitting that the Dave Kittey Memorial be a Super Late Model race at Latrobe Speedway.


The Jay’s Automotive ULMS Racing Super Late Models was a favorite of Dave Kittey’s, as it was a regional racing series similar to the former Mid-Atlantic Championship Series (MACS), another of Kittey’s favorite series.


ULMS drivers are some of the best regional racers in the sport. Many, such as four-time champion Max Blair, go on to compete with national series like the Lucas Oil Late Models and the World of Outlaws.


Gregg Satterlee has 20 wins with ULMS and competes with the series when they are in the area. Satterlee has the Dave Kittey Memorial on his schedule and should be a threat to defending ULMS Champion Tyler Emory. Former ULMS winner at Latrobe Speedway, Logan Zarin, will return for another shot for a win at the big half-mile.


Michael Lake of Uniontown sits third in ULMS points, leading all rookie drivers in the battle for the Chew on this Jerky RoY title. Colton Flinner is third in rookie points behind Dylan Fenton and ahead of Dylan Lewis.


Many other local and regional drivers are expected to compete in the Dave Kittey Memorial on Saturday, May 11.


Pit gates open at 3 pm, with the grandstands opening at 5 pm.


General admission is $25 for adults, Seniors and Military are $22, and kids 7-11 are $12.


Pit admission is $40 for adults and $25 for youth.


Please join us next Saturday, May 11, for the Dave Kittey Memorial ULMS Super Late Models. The 30-lap $4,000-to-win feature also offers bonuses for ULMS racers.


The FASTrak Pro Late Models, the Joe’s Body Shop & Towing Pure Stocks, the Special T Metals LLC Modified 4 Cylinders, and the Marilungo Disposal LLC Strictly Stock 4 Cylinders will also be on the card.
